Breathtaking landscape, a famous castle and a road not for the faint hearted.


Tour of part of the world-famous route NC500, 500 miles of Scottish awesomeness.

This tour goes along Loch Ness and West, towards the most photographed castle in Scotland, Eilean Donan. From there a climb along one of the most challenging routes in Europe (but I will keep you safe and you can relax and enjoy the views).

We will then reach Applecross, a wonderful little village with amazing views on Skye. We then go along the coast to Sheildaig, in view of the majestic Torridon mountains.

From there we will return to Inverness passing through wild vast spaces, full of legends and stories.
